In memoriam

For this week’s 3ww 🙂

Was this the bane that was foretold?
Of the joy now and the pain, to later, unfold?
The fleeting feeling of being complete
The wholeness , that is soon to deplete

The acrid tone, the true colors
The happiness now that had turned sour
The very voice from before, bloomed the heart
Now pushed down the stairs, back to the start

The agony within making the heart swell
Looking inwardly into the bottomless well
In the depths of the bountiful , tepid , ocean
The outcome, in memories , forever to dwell.

    So dark and sad. The words had a chance to be bleak and you used this to your advantage for this poem. Thank you for sharing.

    Nicely written – quiet and powerful.

    quite depressing, as if the meaning of life itself is not worth keeping, but it’s quite accurate in the downward emotions of someone not quite happy

    the touch and feel of another has a strong pull especially so when it is gone… it is good to ponder and consider all of those things gained and lost in a moment, in a lifetime…
